    Most people think 15-year-old Charlie is a freak. But then seniors Patrick and his beautiful stepsister Sam take Charlie under their wings and introduce him to their eclectic, open-minded, hard-partying friends. It is from these older kids that Charlie learns to live and love.

    Story

    I was unsure about this book initially. I wasn't convinced that I would connect with this book or the main character, but the longer I listened, the more I craved it. It reminded me how complicated high school life was for me and that it probably wasn't just me...being a teenager is tough stuff. The narrator was fantastic and in my mind...he was Charlie. Trying to explain this or put this book into words is almost impossible for me, other than to say, it was the best coming of age story that I have read or listened to. I didn't want it to end.

    During his years in a neural-health facility, Pat Peoples has formulated a theory about silver linings. He believes that his life is a movie produced by God, that his mission is to become physically fit and emotionally supportive, and that if he succeeds, his happy ending will be the return of his estranged wife, Nikki. When Pat goes to live with his parents, everything seems changed: no one will talk to him about Nikki, and his new therapist seems to be recommending adultery as a form of therapy.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Silver Linings Playbook to be better than the print version?

    I really enjoyed the audio version of the story since the character Pat did the narration of the story. It felt like he was just sharing a personal experience rather than narrating a book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I enjoyed all the characters...each flawed in their own way. I would have to say that Pat's mother quickly became my favorite character in the book because she was really the main support behind Pat and the glue that kept the family together.

    Story

    I have several friends that have either read or are currently reading this series. I had a few extra audible points to use, so I thought I'd try it out. I really enjoyed this book from start to finish and sometimes continued driving for awhile so I could continue to listen. The narrator was wonderful and it felt like I was right there with him through every situation in the book. Fun story and quite a few laughs. I'm ready for the next one!

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Story

    My husband and I listened to this book on a long road trip. I had already read the Hunger Games and Catching Fire, but my husband had not read either. I really enjoyed listening to the narrator and I caught some things from the audiobook that I did not pay attention to when reading the book initially. We basically finished the book in 2 sittings and thoroughly enjoyed both the narrator and the story. I highly recommend for anyone that enjoys YA and/or dystopian novels.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    Story
    (14154)

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    What made the experience of listening to 11-22-63 the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoyed the narrator and how he made each character unique - he really made each character come to life and become an active part of the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I really loved how the story took the reader to a different time and many different places. I enjoyed the historical aspect and the amazing amount of time and research that must have went in to this novel. It was also interesting how the book tied in with another Stephen King book about Derry, Maine and the grusome murders that occured in the book, It.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were several moving parts of the book, but the end of the book was my absolute favorite moment of the book - very touching and moving.
